or hetero jenne 80, how many languages are spoken, how many religions and the extent of the space and facilities among the religions, how are natural resources distributed, generally not a good idea for all the resources to be found only in one part of a large country and things like that. i don't want to overestimate the importance of constitutions or to say here is our constitution that has really worked because no doubt there would be examples when it didn't. let me be truly heretical and say that one of the things i like about many state constitutions and you find these especially as we move west but not only in the west, is the degree to which they allow an element of direct democracy. the united states constitution was written by people who not to put too fine a point on it were fundamentally mistrustful to their core of democracy. james madison rights very proudly in the third federalist that although the constitution is ordained we the people, that will be the last time the people speak more or less directly. otherwise they will speak exclusively through elected representa
to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region, judy is on, christianity, and islam, coexist in peace and mutual respect. yet of the evil forces of radical islam, who you just saw storming the american embassies throughout the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. they are bent on world conquest. they want to destroy israel, europe, america. they want to extinguish freedom. they want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches, from the rulers of iran, with their revolutionary guards, to the al qaeda terrorists, to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe. but despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is directed first to their fellow muslims and then to christians, jews, buddhists, hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn't submit to their unforgiving creed. they want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict. i'm sure of one thing -- ultimately, they will fail. ultimately, light will penetrate darkness. we have se
not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> this is comparing jesus to mohammed. yeah! apologizing for jesus. >> stephanie: okay. then he talked about the nuclear-armed iran. >> obama: make no mistake a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that would be contained. it would threaten the elimination of israel. that's why a coalition of countries holding the iranian government accountable. and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> oh! preventing iran from getting -- what? [ laughter ] >> they don't have one already? i swear they already did. they found mwd in iraq. apparently they were found at his house in kenya. >> stephanie: here is mitt romney talking about armageddon caused by obama. dogs and cats living together. >> romney: syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim
ought to be free, just as jews and christians and hindus ought to be free to practice religion. he was representing american values but i don't think he was apologizing. it is very important that the united states and israel -- this to the first part of your comment -- be together publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you want to have a united front publicly. it is ok to disagree behind the scenes, but you do not want to disagree in front of adversaries. it is incumbent upon the israelis and americans to show french a publicly. -- show friendship publicly. i side with president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu of israel has effectively intervene in our campaign here by suggesting that the united states should drop redlines and that we will use military force if iran does x or z. that does not make sense. we do not want to send the military into battle just because iran reaches a certain level of enrichment of uranium. we ought to want our president, whether it is president obama or president rom
are people who often base themselves on the wrong-headed view of religion, extreme, narrow-minded and so on. and you see it play out in libya with the tragic death of your ambassador there, it play out in egypt, yemen, syria, iraq. afghanistan, pakistan. this is a battle going on in which i think what we have to do is be there on the side of the modern minded sensible people. it's going to be a very tough struggle in the meantime. >> how much about the way we look at these countries is colored by the last decade of experience in afghanistan and iraq. here in america and great britain, their civilians have been killed in these wars, we don't have the stomach to put our men and women in harm's way. do you think that colors the way president obama views these decisio decisions? >> well, it's always better to have a coalition together. but i think what's happening which is different now in the past couple of years from the previous ten is that we interveinte interve intervened, and so on. this time, it is -- these uprisings are coming from the street. these oppressive regimes are being cast off
. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy against our own most sacred believes. i expect people will call me the most awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> reporter: seeing an inflexion point after the arab spring, the president called on the world's leaders to champion the same values. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocence. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> reporter: and president obama resisted campaign season pressure to intensify his rhetoric against iran. instead, he reiterated in stark terms his commitment to diplomacy and consequences if that fails. >> a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained.
, his taxes, religion, and in this case, george w. bush and the predecessor in the white house. if, in fact, romney talked and had talked more about bush, even being critical of president bush, then i think he would have plotted with much of his base. if you talk to conservative republicans, they say they are not happy with george bush and romney would have resonated with him had he talked to them. >> it's no wonder he can't answer that because his policies are just like pubush. 176 his 24 foreign advisers served under bush, top two economic advisers served under bush and rnc official saying that the romney policies are the bush plans updated. how do you answer that? >> it is. a former bush speechwriter told me that in fact the romney administration would be the third term of a bush presidency. and you look at it not simply on the fiscal policies and certainly what he's talked about publicly in terms of cutting taxes, deregulation, and so forth, sounds an awful lot a like that contributed to the economic woes but if you look at the foreign policy folks, there is a very strong neo-c
the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent libya, i do not represent islam. islam is a religion of peace and love, just as president obama said from this rostrum to days ago. our future will be a future chartered by people like chris stevens, not by people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to misrata for the death of a man who is joined some long list of martyrs five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express my deep appreciation for the actions of the administration following that moment of depression -- of distress. my mission is to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to ensure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people as people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true refle

respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform." "seeking to carve ou host: here is mitt romney at the clinton global initiative.

get those. to be secular jewish vote, which is a big part of new york city, their religion is socialism, -- [inaudible] but what may get them back in the tent is israel. and we need to just shift and 20% would be enough to win the election, but the district is 33% jewish, perhaps more 44% catholic, and then others. so the it doesn't feel warm, it's not a feel good feeling. on the other hand, when it comes to military spending the iron come defense system. it's not the first time egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israel embassy. the second time in a year in egypt embassies are fair game and it was in fact apparently prime minister gnat netanyahu called obama immediately and got on the phone there was no at the point and said do something about this protect these people. >> and they saved israelis. >> you know, people like debbie wasserman schultz say this is the best president in american history for his support of israel. barack says in terms of military spending. but if you ask people on the street they have a different feeling on the feeling to obama to i
in many ways is the quintessential american religion. joseph smith saw america as the promise land, as the place where the second coming would happen and it's a religion, basically, based in and vested in the idea of american exceptionalism. on the one hand, that should enable governor romney to talk about america in that way. the other point that he makes that you alluded to earlier, a religion in terms of its existence in america is based on adrsity andrej pice and combatting adversity and that should allow him also to rise to the occasion during presidential campaign. >> it makes it, presumably, a stronger campaigner out there, given the rough and tumble of a political campaign that's under way. you've also uncovered a really intriguing, pretty good picture that we've never seen of mitt romney before. i'll put it up on the screen. i want you to explain what's going on in this picture. >> yes, we think it's from about 69, wolf. it's gernor rney was on his missionary lead in france as a young man and it was when h was still courting then ann davies who was later tome his wife and
superintendent banned the banners because he got a complaint from freedom from religion, the group out of washington who said this clearly violates the separation of church and state. here's somebody else who opposes those banners. listen. >> the school can't support one religion over another, and you can't have bible scriptures by cheerleaders at an official school game. >> reporter: yeah, well now a state court has temporarily lifted the ban on the banners after a group promoting religious freedom agreed to represent the cheerleaders and the football players and, of course, the attorney general who's a republican in texas all weighed in backing the cheerleaders. so now the final court decision will come this week, and it all kind of comes down to whether or not these banners are being endorsed by the school or whether they are the personal beliefs of the cheerleaders, though we looked back, and cases like this have lost like in georgia and a 2000 supreme court decision which said kids cannot go on the intercom and say prayerses before the games start. so right now weighing a little b
. and basically, he makes the case that mormanism is, in fact, the quintessential american religion. mormanism is all about america being the promised land. and jon finds it a little curious that governor romney doesn't talk about that more because in a sense, mormanism is about american exceptionalism. and the fact that governor romney doesn't incorporate that in his whole argument is a curious thing. and the other thing that he says about mormanism is that it's a religion of trial and tribulation and escaping prejudice and being under the gun. and, in fact, that also is animating mitt's campaign because he's kind of trying to sail steady in the face of all of this turbulence. >> it's a perfect -- it's not actually curious at all. there's a very clear reason why he doesn't talk about it. and it reflects the innate caution of their campaign. they've been worried all along about base voters, evangelical voters and not turning out for him. they've been concerned about that from day one. you could criticize that caution. i would criticize that caution, but that's the reason why he doesn't talk ab
people who are hawkish. he's not a member of the religion right. he doesn't run around liberty university or hang around with jerry falwell but he wants their support. he's not really a ryan republican identify log conviction politician but he put him on the ticket. isn't that the fundamental problem with the guy? he wants to date these people through the election. he wants their support, but he doesn't want to be one of them. he doesn't want to marry them. is that true? >> yes. look, chris, i think he's a person who is fundamentally ill suited to being the republican nominee given what the republican party currently is. and you could say that on a bunch of different levels. it's an evangelical party and he's a mormon. it's a southern and western -- southern around western party, he's northeasterner. it's a populist party. he's more or less an establishment tearian. he wanted to say barack obama has failed as an economic steward and i'm a business guy and so i know how to create jobs. and as soon as that fell away, as soon as people started to think that the economy was doing better, as s

, consider this. this year, the new yorker wrote a huge spread on michele bachmann and her faith and religion, getting a lot of the theology wrong what she believes. in 2008, john mccain was endorsed by several pastors and it became multi-day stories in the media about john mccain's endorsements but the jeremiah wright stuff, you talk to a lot of reporters, they say barack obama never went to jeremiah wright's church. he just used that to build his political career in chicago. i as a conservative really don't think the media has portrayed barack obama's relationship with jeremiah wright as he himself did in 2008 and i still think that's a relevant topic. >> actually, bryce, let me bring you in here. then candidate obama in 2008 did make that speech in which he said i was there when he made controversial remarks and just like a lot of people disagree with their pastors, i disagreed with him on some of the things he said and here's the person i know, and then distanced himself. what do you make of this tape tonight? >> i think it's very interesting that anybody would say that we haven't properl
to muslims who worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know there's some who ask why don't we just ban such a video? and the answer is enshred in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views, even views that we profoundly disagree with. we do not do so because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections,

a middle east of progress and peace. we want to see the three great religions that strange forth from our region, judaism, christianity and islam coexist in peace and mutual respect. but the medieval forces of radical islam you just saw storming the american embassies throughout the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. they are bent on world conquest. they want to destroy israel, europe, america. they want to ex -- want to extinguish freedom. they want to end the modern world. militant islam has many branches from the rulers of iran with their revolutionary guards to al qaeda terrorists, to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe. but despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. that intolerance is direct the first to their fellow muslims, and then to christians, jews, buddhists, hindus, secular people. anyone who doesn't submit to their unforgiving creed. they want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict. i'm sure of one thing. ultimately they will fail. ultimately

and traditions, but there is a fundamental difference between islam and extremism. it is a great religion observed peacefully by over 1 billion people in our world. the extremism is a worked political ideology supported by a minority that seeks to hijack this great religion to gain respectability for its violent objectives. it is vital that we make this distinction. in turkey, we see a government with roots and islamic values. but one with democratic politics, an open economy, and a response supporting change in libya and elsewhere in the nation. i profoundly believe the same path as open to egypt. we must help them to take it. democracy and is long can flourish along one side -- alongside one another. let us in a game with -- lesson date with a new democratic government so their success can strengthen democracy, not undermine it. mr. president, there is no doubt the we are in the midst of profound change and that many uncertainties lie ahead, but the building blocks of democracy, fair economies, are part of the solution -- not the problem. indeed, nothing has changed my fundamental condi

and for religious discrimination. it's very hard to define defamation of religion. so the president in his speech will have to condemn the video that makes fun of the prophet muhammad without at the same time apologizing for the for amendment. host: it's not just the turkish president asking for this. it's also the new egyptian president mohamed morsi who will be calling for this. what do you make of that, given the protests in cairo recently and president obama's relationship with this new president? guest: all the leaders coming, including mohamed morsi, are playing a double game. applying a domestic game and an international game. he is the head of an islamist government, not a jihadist government, but an islamist government led by the muslim brotherhood. he must condemn this and call for international action. at the same time, people in the u.s. are very wary about whether or not he will communicate a style of governance that is zero more in the turkish style where there's a big religious influence within the government but there will also be tolerance for pluralism. i expect he will call for
working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal. do not be satisfied with spending a bunch of tax money to keep this mediocre status quo. romney needs to get on that message. jon: simon, roughly half of all jobs lost have been lost by white men, so how does president obama try to appeal to them? >> well, was i think -- because i think the white men view the economy the way that most voters see it which is they know that things were really bad when president obama came to office, and things have gotten better. i know that not everybody who watches this believes that, but that's the case -- >> a lot of people who don't have jobs don't believe that. >> i know, but things are getting better. there's nobody spiking the football here on the economy, but clearly things are not only getting better from where they were when obama took office, but in the last few months -- [audio difficulty] as you just heard a minute
believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times."
